Pick up & drop off zones

We operate both paid and free pickup & dropoff areas at Edinburgh Airport.

As an airport we want to offer passengers as much choice as possible and you can find out more about each zone, and where they are located on the airport campus, below.

Paid Dropoff & Pickup

If you're looking for a quick and easy drop-off or pick-up with no waiting about then this is the one. This zone can be found on the ground floor of the multi-storey car park, right next to the terminal. Currently priced at £5 for stays of 0 to 10 minutes.

More information here.

Free Dropoff & Pickup

Don't forget we've got a free Dropoff & Pickup zone in the long-stay car park, a 10-minute walk from the terminal. Ideal if your passengers don't mind a stretch of the legs. Stop here for 30-minutes without being charged a fee. Please note there is no shuttle bus in operation.

Information for passengers

Anyone in the following postcodes can apply for a 50% discount: EH4 6; EH4 8; EH12 0; EH12 9; EH28; EH 29 or EH52 5. More on how to apply can be found here. Electric vehicle drivers will be discounted for the first 10-minutes.

Vehicles carrying passengers with blue badges have free access to our car parks for one hour. For the Paid Pickup & Dropoff zone use the intercom on exit to let us know. For all other car parks take your ticket to the reception on the multi-storey ground floor for validation.

Pickup & Dropoff project

Pickup dropoff project aerial

We've been undertaking a £1.6million project to redevelop our paid Pickup & Dropoff zone on the ground floor of the multi-storey car park. This is open to passengers from Friday, June 30.

The area has been completely redesigned to create a more modern, user-friendly experience for users in time for the busy summer 2023 period.
